How can I clean smoke stains on marble fireplaces?
Getting smoke stains out of marble fireplaces might seem like hard work however, what you need to do is firstly wet the stained area and this will mean that when the dirt is dissolved it will not be drawn into the marble. Then you should apply a cleaning solution which has been tested and specially formulated for use on marble. Work the stain and then rinse the marble off; using a dry and soft cloth dry the area and try and stay away from using acidic products as this will damage the marble.
How can I clean rust from cast iron fireplaces?
One of the most simple, yet highly effective ways of cleaning and eradicating rust from your cast iron fireplace is to actually use white vinegar. If you simply just remove it then it will return at a later stage. Apply the vinegar and rub it into the rust until it is removed and then buff the cast iron with steel wool or a very fine grade wire wheel and this should do the trick.
